Now onto next weeks #WPSTips subject - child medication
Health professionals are divided on this subject. We believe that in rare cases children do need extra help from medication, but this should always be accompanied by other psychological therapy. If you take medication, you will need to take it for the rest of your life. Research shows that therapies such as CBT actually re-wire the brain whereas medication stimulates the brain to act in a different way - therefore the brain never needs to re-wire itself. Most medications are still relatively new in research terms and the long-term effects are still relatively unknown. But thats enough from me as Amy will be going through all of this throughout the week with you on facebook, twitter and google+. Tune in from 8:45 tomorrow and catch us all week. Have a great Sunday!
